Swearing At Motorists Mentioned on Craig Ferguson • Playing Misra SXSW Showcase

S@MFERGUSON

We’re hoping Swearing At Motorists play the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in future days, however, for now, S@M were name-dropped on Ferguson’s show. In light of SXSW 2014 being right around the corner, the band was part of a game entitled “Which Is Not An Actual Band Name?”

Swearing At Motorists are playing the MISRA SXSW SHOWCASE 2014.

Misra is preparing to work with Swearing At Motorists in future days. Here is a gem off “While Laughing, the Joker Tells the Truth”—the band’s first full-length in nearly eight years.
